Omni has screencaps up but no summary yet. For once I have little idea what's actually going on from just the screencaps so could someone who's seen the new ep give a rundown on what happened?


Spoiler for ep13 and a little game:

Is it me, or does the art in the episode 14 preview look just .... REALLY BAD?
If it keeps up that way, it'll have to be nominated for a six-finger award -_-;

Spoiler for episode 13 stuff:

Shrug, they've already completely shafted the timeline of the anime in comparison to the game. What's a few more changes going to do it?

Touka is still getting off easy on the character side, Kuuya and to a lesser extent Genjimaru and Sakuya are the ones getting truly shafted by this. Not that I agree with the changes to Touka at all as she was my favourite character in the game. I pretty much gave up on the show when it failed to manifest 某としたことがっ. Call me a weirdo if you will, but I was really looking forward to her saying that. Not having watched the episode, I'm not sure how they resolved the Touka thing, but I can already see that it can't have been as good as Touka's "lavatory duty" scene in the throne room.

I just looked at some of the screenshots for episode 13, looks really good in some parts, gaah i need to see now, but i've still gotta wait for episode 12.

Newprimus 2006-06-27 21:29

I briefly watched ep 13 raw and while the plot has diverged, the anime still seems to look to be enjoyable.

Spoiler for plot discussion:

Takemi_Ikazuchi 2006-06-28 09:19

It makes more sense this way.

In the original story I was surprised that Niwe didn't attack when irresponsible captain hakuoro was on some covert ops vacation.

Tuskuru hand only what... Oboro, Benawi, Kurou and the Archers to defend the nation?

Angela Sanctisstessa 2006-06-28 09:37

13 is ok, the cg scenes are well executed, just... sth that Niue said bothers me

Nah, I liked the preview :X It looked cool to me.

Well anyways...

Spoiler for KYAKAKA:

Why didn't orikakan just get help from the entire touka's village since each of them is blessed in such a good fighting abilities??

He can easily win over any great armies.

I can't get the game in my local store here...any ways for me to get my hands on it?

Um... and he would do that... how? From what I understand, the Evenkuruga are sent out from their village to wander and help fight for justice, and Touka just happened to wander into Orikakan's kingdom.

So you meant that those Evenkuruga aren't own by any Kingdom and are independent on thier own??

Sorry for asking this question but I have not played the game.....

thundrakkon 2006-07-09 21:13

So does this mean Hakuoro kingdom just expanded? Or did he just wipe out their army, ruler, and just left it in shambles?

The storyline is a little confusing in this episode. So Orikakan just believed that Hakuoro is the villain, but in reality, he is not? Is that black flame around Hakuoro really from Hakuoro, or was it an illusion?

I have to love the relationship progression between Hakuoro and Eruruu, although "mother"??!?! It must have broke her heart. A nice comeback by her, though. Aruruu just gets cuter and cuter each episode.

KaneDragon 2006-07-09 22:46

Hakuoro was all like "Yes" and Eruruu was all like "No"... =/ That was an interesting part. She had her chance.

But he did get a surprise huggle, so alles klar. ^_^ Happy Aruruu so cute.... And when neither Hakuoro nor Eruruu could be found the next morning... ^o^

The way Hakuoro effortlessly disarmed the brother-in-law was awesome. Hakuoro's coolness has been reaffirmed.

And that fire... an illusion? What's the point if the only guy who's going to see it gets killed a few seconds later? It's not like Hakuoro emo'ing about who/what he is is anything new. And if it is, too bad, because a flaming Hakuoro would raise the badassness bar that much higher. Good ep. I was wondering when that Evil Emperor would show up again. I don't get the whole point of that guy's plot, though. It's not like he really cares that much the brother-in-law. His home village, yes, the rest... not so much, though I guess hinting at a dark past may have done the trick. Also, lousy evil laughter, but his cool companion makes up for that. Reality is interesting, huh?

Maybe it's just you, or maybe it's me, but I thought the animation in the preview looked great (well, relative to what we've been shown lately). It looked pretty slick to me. Character design appeared abit deformed, but I suppose that's to enhance the action scene's intensity?

...I'm hoping that nickname doesn't stick.

Anyway, demonic Rak Shine seems to be an interesting twist (well, at least for those who haven't played the game). It'd be pretty cool if he ends up destroying his new village, too. Evil rules...but evil, maniacal laughter does not. I wish that old coot would get his esophagus ripped out.

angel killer 2006-07-10 05:39

quick question hope i'm wrong but was that Eruruu about to be flatend buy a burning building in the preview for the next ep

Sorrow-K 2006-07-10 07:32

Oh geez, I hope this isn't a sign of things to come, because this episode was really bad.

If there was one thing I was critical of Utawarerumono all the way through so far, it's the segue between scenes, ie there is none. Events seem to happen in a rather random sort of fashion, and I'm really having trouble seeing how many of them contribute to the story overall, and how they tie in with each other. It's not an issue with the pacing, since that's been fine, but it's something that's a little more fundamental. It could be to do with the nature of fantasy/war type stories, but too many things (battles in particular) happen very suddenly, without warning. The transition from relative peace to war is just too jarring, I find.

But that's a minor thing I can deal with, because the story has been ok up til now. But something's gone wrong in this episode. I thought the plot-twist towards the end and Hakuoro's demonic side were really trite plot points. But what made it worse were the way they were presented. The dialogue was pretty tacky, and whathisface's laugh was seriously annoying and very distracting. And Orikakan
Spoiler:
as little more than a plot device.

Very disappointing episode, I thought. Too much attention on plot, not enough on getting flow and atmosphere right.

Not sure if something happened during the night between the 2 of them but the next morning they are with aruru maybe they just went for a walk carefree like they used to do went they were living in Eruru's village since Eruru told him he would remain the one she knew no matter what...... naaaah xD. Anyway i dont think they behave like a couple that made love the night before, they werent even holding hands if i remember properly (not positive since i watched the episode really quickly this morning). I think they are still on a platonic stage of their relation. Maybe that scene was just a reminderer of that old moto : Have you hug your local anmensic today??? though after he wasnt actively looking for Eruru in the crowd like he did... Nice ambiguity and suggestion in their actions.

Episode was ok for the devellopement of the relationship but that is all. A typical sortie -> victory -> yeepee episode, the little bit of chat between the 2 brothers in law didnt bring anything new or that we already knew and suspected (horned mask ->oni/demon???), if the "justice guy" decide to side with the hero next episode it would suck it would feel forced on the viewer.
